A competition was held as part of Amble Puffin Festival with all the paintings displayed in local shop windows.
Winning pupils from Amble First School and Amble Links First School were delighted to meet Tommy Noddy, the giant puffin, who came to help hand out prizes.
The winners received a cuddly toy puffin.

Meanwhile, festival organisers were delighted with the turnout at the event.
“There were great displays, great shows,” said Bart Rippon, chairman of the Amble Event Committee. “The stilts were really good, and the giant seagulls were brilliant.
"The weather stayed fine for both days, the music was excellent and we had a fitting end to the festival with sea shanties from the Auckland Shanty Singers.”
As ever, the festival provided an eclectic mix of local interest, nature walks and history talks as well as arts and crafts.
The main festival took place in the Town Square which filled with entertainers and musicians from far and wide.
The live puffin feed from Coquet Island was very popular, and Paul Morrison, RSPB Coquet Island warden, was inundated with questions about puffins and roseate terns.
